Metrix Accelerometer Signal Conditioners 5535/45

Provides 4-20mA output interface with a PLC / DCS or other process monitor. Available local LCD display. Filters and galvanic isolation available. BNC output for dynamic signal analysis.

FEATURES

  • Reduced cost alternatives to rack mount monitors
  • Drives dynamic signals over long distances (300 m or 1000 ft)
  • Interfaces an accelerometer to a PLC, DCS or other 4-20 mA input monitor
  • Provides 4-20 mA output proportional to vibration level
  • Sensor/cable input status light (green LED)
  • BNC connector for FFT analyzers
  • Optional indicator and/or galvanic isolation
  • High, Low and Band Pass Frequency Filters for specific machine conditions

APPLICATIONS

  • Gear mesh monitoring on gear boxes
  • Industrial Fans
  • Motors & Generators
  • Process Pumps
  • Centrifuges
  • Natural Gas/Diesel Engines
  • Gas Turbines

These Accelerometer Signal Conditioners accept signals from machine casing mounted Metrix Seismic Accelerometer or most competitve accelerometers and produce a 4-20 mA current source output proportional to the measured variable. The detection circuit is responsive to true RMS vibration but the output may be scaled either to peak or RMS units. A green LED indicates sensor and cable integrity. In the event of sensor failure, the LED extinguishes and the output current is driven below 3.6 mA, thereby signaling a malfunction. A BNC connector gives access to the buffered input signal for local analysis. Optional features for either model include filters and galvanic isolation between input, output and power supply.
